A pretty cool cat toy. I’d never have thought it. A fascinating aspect of the video is the way Smokey’s body jerks in time to the clicking of the metronome. Is this due to sound sensitivity? It makes a very sharp sound. I think this should be discussed. I have seen this before. I think the hearing of cats is so sensitive that the sharp click of the metronome slightly shocks the cat which makes him jerk back each time it clicks.

The word “metronome” is from the ancient Greek μέτρον and νέμω. Musicians use it to hit a regular beat.
